Penn State ex-VP appeals Sandusky-related ruling

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) — A former Penn State administrator accused of covering up complaints about Jerry Sandusky is appealing a judge’s recent decision that allowed the case to continue.

Retired university vice president Gary Schultz filed a notice with the county court on Friday that says he’s appealing to the Superior Court in Harrisburg.

He’s asking the appellate court to review the Feb. 9 ruling by a judge who supervised the grand jury that investigated him, Sandusky and two other university officials.

Schultz’s attorney Tom Farrell says the brief notice of appeal will be followed by a document that lays out the basis for it.

Schultz’s co-defendants are former Penn State president Graham Spanier and former athletic director Tim Curley. Sandusky, the school’s former assistant coach, is serving a lengthy child molestation prison sentence.
